Have the opportunity to unlock knowledge on key aspects of international human resource management

This research-driven program aims to provide a critical evaluation of the globalisation of human resource management (HRM) strategies from various perspectives. You’ll be introduced and encouraged to study the key concepts for understanding international HRM, and explore the practice of managing human resources in an international context.

The intercultural factor will also aim to be examined and appraised from an anthropological point of view. This perspective aims to place emphasis on the operational aspect of the organisation of performance-efficient systems of work in international settings.
